Arbitration is defined as the private determination of a dispute, by an independent third party. Yet the process is not so well understood.
This practical work-through, using a common fact scenario, sheds light on the arbitration process, from start to finish, so that attendees can feel more comfortable about choosing and conducting this ADR option which is being used more often and across a diverse range of disputes.
- Become more familiar with the phases of the arbitration process, including appointment of the arbitrator, the anatomy of the pre-hearing conference, how costs are dealt with.
- Gain insights into how the arbitration process can be tailored to the needs of the parties and the particular dispute (including the form of arbitration) – and when other forms of alternative dispute resolution might be more suitable.
- Get a better feel for the range of issues that can arise during the arbitration process, including ethical matters.
- View portions of a mock arbitration in action, conducted by those very experienced in this forum, so that you feel better prepared for your next one.
Who should view?
Litigators at junior to intermediate level who are, or may be involved in, arbitrations from time to time and those more senior seeking a refresher/updater.
